Trina Solar Unveils Dual Rated 1000V Panel for North America
Panel Reduces Installation Cost and Maximizes Inventory Flexibility
SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 5, 2013
SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trina Solar Limited(NYSE: TSL)
("Trina Solar" or the "Company"), a global leader in photovoltaic modules,
solutions and services, today announced that a new line of 72-cell modules has
been certified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and TUV Rheinland, according
to UL 1703 and IEC 61215/61730 respectively, to have a rated system voltage of
1000V. The dual rated modules provide the high performance expected from a
Trina Solar module while delivering a lower total cost of installation and
greater inventory and project flexibility.
The new dual rated modules continue the Company's commitment to provide better
solutions for Trina Solar partners. These new modules incorporate the most
recent advances in polysilicon-based solar technology innovations to enable
installers and developers to now use them for either utility ground mount or
commercial rooftop installations. High transparency, 4.0mm thick tempered
glass provides enhanced module durability and MC4PLUS photovoltaic connectors
increase system reliability. Additionally, the dual rated modules enable
longer PV strings, resulting in fewer combiner boxes, fewer wiring needs and
lower installation labor costs. The new modules are backed by Trina Solar's
25-year linear power warranty.
"Trina Solar continues to meet the evolving needs of our partners," said Mark
Mendenhall, President of Trina Solar Americas. "Our new, dual rated modules
provide the flexibility that our partners have asked for while delivering the
high performance they've come to expect. Ultimately, we have taken another
step to give our partners better ways to meet their installation needs while
reducing the total cost of installation."
The UL and IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) dual rated modules
are California Energy Commission (CEC) listed. Unlike standard modules, the
dual rated modules can be used to satisfy installation requirements for either
commercial rooftop or utility scale installations in North America or Europe.
The new dual rated modules continue the Company's track record of product
leadership, industry firsts and strategic investments in the long-term growth
of its partners and the solar industry overall. Earlier this year, the Company
unveiled new, cutting-edge products including Trinasmart and Trinamount that
speed the installation process, as well as Design Services that deliver
preliminary system layouts. The combination of diverse product offerings and
services highlights Trina Solar's expanding commitment to providing a full
range of solar solutions to its partners throughout the value chain.
Trina Solar has received recognition by two organizations for its sustainable
practices and field performance. The Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition, in its
annual global review of sustainable manufacturing practices, ranked the
Company first among solar panel manufacturers throughout the world.
Additionally, Trina Solar's panels rank near the top of all polysilicon-based
modules the California Energy Commission's PTC/STC ratio that estimates
real-world panel performance.
